Intuit’s dominance in the realm of mobile solutions for business owners is growing at a rapid pace.

Late last week, the venerable name in business and financial management solutions, raised the curtain on its next generation of mobile products that will expand its portfolio of connected services.

According to Intuit, these range from innovations that will make it easier for the smallest of businesses to accept credit card payments, to others that will help doctors and patients communicate quickly, to a banking application that allows consumers to deposit a check from anywhere with just their mobile phone.

This new lineup debuted at the company’s Innovation Gallery Walk, a showcase of more than 20 mobile solutions designed to help Intuit’s 50 million customers manage and improve their financial lives.

More than 35 million people already use Intuit connected services, the company says. Collectively they generated 62% of the company’s revenue in fiscal year 2011 – nearly $2.4 billion – and are expected to grow to 75 percent of revenue by 2015.

“As our customers’ technology tools of choice increasingly become mobile devices we’re moving with them, creating innovative new offerings in every category we serve,” says Brad Smith, Intuit’s president and chief executive officer. “Connected services are driving customer acquisition and revenue growth in all of our businesses and mobile is accelerating these trends.”

Intuit is harnessing the power of mobile to solve important customer problems in new and innovative ways. Recent successes include SnapTax, the first start-to-finish tax prep app on a smartphone, and GoPayment, a mobile app and credit card reader that lets small businesses process credit cards on mobile devices, no matter where they are.

    Those are strong words from Brad and make Intuit sound like they are on the ball. The problem is Intuit made comments like this three years ago and here we are three years later and there is still no viable ecommerce solution coming from them.

    I hold my reservations that Intuit is on the case and have any real plans to deliver on this promise. 40% of their customers have been begging for an online ecommerce solution that is mobile friendly and so far the only reply has been "We may offer that in the future but currently we do not have any plans for this".

    I have been waiting but I am not waiting any longer. We need a company that is ready to be innovators for the online ecommerce world. While the banks and companies like Intuit set on their hands business is spending millions on less robust solutions that are hap-hazzard at best!
